  5. Thanks for that and apologies for the mistake should have known better I am usually the one to pick out mistakes like that lol
  6. Hi Qualia thanks for your reply I do wear glasses so yes what you say about eye relief would be true, usually find I take my glasses off to view through the scope. Yes Peter it is the one and thanks for pointing the fact about it being a 2 inch think my scope has the 1.25 inch size eye pieces so think thats that idea out the window or can you get adapters for this. My scope is a Jessops one I got bought for christmas. Was a christmas what do you want for christmas moment lol.

  9. I would say a big immigration problem have to agree with you there
  10. Hello , a question to ask . We just had a couple of thunder storms about an hour ago, I was think will this make any difference to the images you see, does it make any difference to the atmospheric conditions. ? IE reduce the distortion you get when using a web cam.
  11. Stunning pictures would love to be able to take photos from above the earths atmosphere.
  12. Clear sky too, I have now got a sky like your first picture lol.
  13. Saturn is the best an excellent image well done Carl
  14. Thanks I will have another go when the sky is clear again
  15. HI all thought I would have a go with my new lens sigma 70-300mm. Picture of moon taken just using Nikon D60 hand held. Taken at 10.30pm last night . Managed to grab a view of saturn later using the scope. I hope I have uploaded this right bright side of moon is very blown out hence it being black and white. Hoping I can improve . Carl
  16. Hi nice one I saw it go over the other night after a quick look out the window to see how clear it was before I went to bed. Carl
  17. Hi , just thought I would say I think the new look forum is a good improvement thanks to all who was involved. One quick question is there a limit on how many posts on the forum before you can upload into an album to be viewed ? Carl
